Nicholas Collon

  • Conductor


Nicholas Collon's operatic experience includes a recent programme of Walton’s The Bear and Stravinsky’s Renard for Mahogany Opera in 2008, described by Opera magazine’s critic as 'one of the most electrifying evenings I’ve spent at the opera in recent seasons ... brilliant playing [by] the Aurora Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Collon, whose feel for Stravinsky’s Russian colourings were beyond reproach’.
In April 2007 he conducted Mozart’s The Magic Flute, directed by Sam West, in Ramallah and Bethlehem, the first-ever staged opera production in the West Bank and returned this year with the same team for performances of La Boheme. Future appearances with Aurora Orchestra include concerts at LSO St Lukes, the Wigmore Hall, the City of London Festival and a week’s curatorship at King’s Place featuring music from the Weimar Republic. Other appearances this season include a return to the Orchestra of Opera North, a special project at Glyndebourne conducting a new opera by Julian Phillips, the London Sinfonietta and he will be one of the conductors for George Crumb’s Star Child with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican.
